KJ is really in an interesting spot. While you are correct
Posted: Apr 9, 2014 10:20 AM
 

with your statement that "there will just be a new crop of 18 year old kids next year", it is generally agreed that this is one of the deepest drafts in recent years, making a decision to declare more iffy.

KJ,s only getting older and teams aren't keen on taking Seniors as much as they used to. But in KJ's case..if he can improve he jump shot, show his leadership skills and lead Clemson into the NCAA's, he could move up into the lottery discussion. If he has the chance to improve form a borderline first-round pick to a possible lottery pick, with his family financially stable, it may very well behoove him to stay. I think he can only improve his draft stock next year, barring injury.

So let's say he gets picked 27th in the draft this year; that is a contratc worth 2.8 million over three years. If he stays and moves up to the 7th overall pick, he'd get 2.4 million in his first year and almost 8 million over three years. Is it worth the possibility of getting paid two and a half times more for coming back to college for an additional year?

I think he'd have a lot to gain by staying with little to lose. On the other hand, it is hard to defer payment when you have $800,000 just sitting right there in front of you!!

Projected 25 is no sure thing, means he's borderline

His ball-handling is definitely a weak point, and his jumper

With his athleticism, why is he a 2?***
TigersAndCubs Apr 9, 2014 9:14 AM
He's really more of a 3....
BigCUFan® Apr 9, 2014 9:47 AM
Because he's only 6'5" 200 pounds...
TheTigerFan555 Apr 9, 2014 9:56 AM
He doesn't have to defend the same position on defense.***
TigersAndCubs Apr 9, 2014 11:32 AM
So the team that drafts him needs a 6'8, 240 2 guard?***
striperfan Apr 9, 2014 12:11 PM
Exactly***
CM Shack Apr 9, 2014 1:39 PM
No. but the 6-8 dude will be defending him, so there's that***
CM Shack Apr 9, 2014 1:44 PM
Not many 6'5 or 6'6 SF's in the NBA
